This tells the browser to refresh the page
and that it should do so every five seconds
Suppose, however, that you want the page to refresh itself by going automatically to
another page. This is common, for example, when someone has moved their home page to a new location, but want someone who goes to the old location to still find a pointer. You could put this
|this code||produces this|
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="5; URL=autoforward_target.html">
In this case the
CONTENT="5; URL=autoforward_target.html" tells the browser that the page should be refreshed.
In a situation like this, you should also provide a regular link to the new page.Copyright 1997-2002 Idocs Inc.
